Big primitivo from Manduria grown on sandy soil! Smells almost maderized as it goes from jammy plum and raspberry to prickly pear and jalepeño jam with a twisted soy brininess emanating cedar and ripe heat! Full-bodied sasparilla reduction with a blanket of dried blackberry soaked in cola and then reduced. Over-browned coffee cake comes to mind, if the burnt sugars manifested drily with a cinnamon stick and plum reduction indelibility. The Mandurian candied-date! #primitivo #manduria #italianwines #Dunico #felline #Recemi #fruitbomb — 2 years ago
A blood orange and a lemon had a baby here, with beautiful blueberry eyes! It’s rhubarb pink hair smells like peaches and apricot flowers. It’s skin is beet red, bordering on blood,and it barely weighs more than a carton of cranberries. Although...Now that I’ve had time to babysit this little urchin, I realize its deceptive quality. There is a tea-like depth to this one, with shimmering ginseng, rhubarb concentrate, black lime and bitter cherry, cassis and black currant.
Its soul is shadowy, but its intentions innocent enough. Crawl with it through the brambly-wood, discover the black leaves of autumn’s demise where stark trees posture gruesomely.
Laugh, and discover the handful of black pomegranate arils and the promise of eternity. #beer #toøl #mrblue #reservoirdogs #blueberry #alienbaby #fruitbomb #saison #weird #rye #saisonstyle — a year ago
Not quite opaque but med + concentration and a deep ruby core with little rim variation. Med + intensity and med complexity. A fruit bomb on the nose and palate. Ripe/jammy black and fruit. Seductive and yummy with smooth tannins and med - acid. Alcohol is well integrated. Med length. Just plain old delicious. #justin #pasorobles #cabernetsauvignon #fruitbomb #californiacab #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago
